This is long so if you want cliffnotes at the bottom. Im asking for any experience one may have working for either one of these oh so wonderful government branches. As of right now I'm working with General Dynamics(dod gov't contractors) doing this whole Pentagon renovation thing. Basically my job is easy as hell, these gov't employees are so lazy that they hire contracts to take apart their computers and move them to a different location in the Pentagon and set up again. I'm talking as simple as unplug the monitor, keyboard, mouse, speaker etc... bag the items, tag it and wait for it to be moved to be set right back up again. I love my job and it pays extremely well, best part is as a 'Pentagon regulation" thingy stuff cannot be moved in the hallways intill 5 o'clock or later. So my work day is come in at 8 disassemble everything, bag and tag that takes till about 12 - 1 oclock then chill from 1 - 5 oclock at the pentagon mall and be paid for it, and then move back in and put everything back together. But recently I was offered a position as a TSA officer at Dulles Internation Airport and I dont know weather I should quit and go work for TSA. My problem is that as a contractor for DoD if we lose the bid for the contract to someone else its over for the entire year, so the job isnt so stable, but the pay is high. But if I move to go work with TSA I take a major pay cut in exchange for job stability and room for growth. So I dont really know what to do, has or is anyone worked with TSA or airport US Customs before? that can tell me how its like. - I work for General Dynamics(dod gov't contractors) - I got offered a postion as a TSA officer at Dulles Internation Airport - Working for GD is great pay with no stability(losing on a contract) - TSA offers lower pay with job stability - I dont know what the hell to do and wanted to know if anyone has experience working for TSA or US Custom officers at airports or knows anything at all. Edit: I also have no Idea how long this "Pentagon Renovation Project" will last for, so thats of concern too.
